In the fight for our liberation, we must always choose our own heroes. Accepting that we can’t change what happened to Jordan is hard, but it helps to know that we have the power to shape how his story is told.
It is our privilege and responsibility to share both how much Jordan’s life meant to his family and friends and what his death now means for our community.

Jordan’s death was, and will always be, a call to action.

#MTB #JusticeforJordanWalton
It was in Jordan’s name that we delivered hundreds of meals, distributed reparations to dozens of Black families, & housed folx who had no place to go during the winter storm. Jordan’s Place became a space of Black beauty, Black autonomy, & Black community.

Kun sää vihoin iltapäiväl näytti lähes varmalta pouvalta, ni läksin pyöräilee maantielle #väärinpyöräily, koska #liikeonlääke ja #liikkuvatenhoeikipuile, mut ehä mie malttannu pysyy pois soralta ja poluilta, ku etin myös ruutui ja kilsoi. Tänään ekaan ruutuun piti pyöräillä +30km
Ja mikäs tuol oli pyöräilles, ku sain vaan pienen kuuron viilentämään tuntojani ja pyörä rullas helposti, vaik välillä polut meinas jopa kadota ja sora oli kreppirauvvan jäliltä

I'm very pleased to announce our publication "Whole genome, transcriptome and methylome profiling enhances actionable target discovery in high-risk paediatric cancer" online today in @NatureMedicine Here's a tweetorial of the main findings 1/22
This research was 7 years in the making & is the first major publication from #ZeroChildhoodCancer, a joint initiative of @KidsCancerInst and Kids Cancer Centre @Sydney_Kids. #Zero is now a national precision medicine program, including all 8 hospitals and 23 research partners /2
What value does deciphering the whole genome hold for guiding clinical care of children with high-risk cancer? LOTS. Does it provide more accurate diagnoses, more treatment options, better risk stratification? YES. Can it be done fast enough to have a clinical impact? YES. /3

In our @LancetMicrobe paper we report 671 Mtb genomes 🧬from 391 patients with drug #resistant #tuberculosis in KwaZulu-Natal South Africa sampled over 6 years.

We screened for resistance to #bedaquiline, a drug now central to effective #TB treatment.

We found ~4% of patients harboured #Mtb with variants in genes known to mediate #resistance to bedaquiline/clofazimine.

Phylogenetic analyses show repeated & independent acquisitions of resistance variants, including onward transmission of resistant strains across South Africa.
Bedaquiline is a reasonably new, but now cornerstone, drug in the fight against #DRTB.

The lack of routine #bedaquiline susceptibility testing may allow these #resistant strains to continue to spread, unwatched, posing further significant challenges to #TB treatment & control.
